  1. I still haven't started on mine. I probably won't make my Christmas deadline. I am looking forward to starting on this but I have 2 projects ahead of it and I am sticking to my New Year's resolution of only 1 project at a time. I can't believe I've actually stuck with it but more of my projects are getting done. I'm hoping to be able to start on this in the next week or so. I will post pics as I progress.
  2. I got my package!! Thanks Lorraine the doily is beautiful. I also loved the potholders and teas!! I will try to post pics over the weekend.
  3. I received my partner assignment and having been emailing with her. I so love to make doilies. This swap also meant that I just HAD to make a trip to the yarn store. Hehe. While I was at Hobby Lobby I found a bamboo handled steel hook. SCORE!! I can't wait to try it out. After church today, I have the entire day to crochet (and the dreaded laundry...it never ends). I hope my partener likes the pattern I picked. It's by my favorite designer (C'Ville's own Kathy White). Can't wait to get started!!
  4. I couldn't find my pattern so I did download it from Leisure Arts. I will pull out my stash this afternoon and try to pick my colors. I have a doily that I have a deadline on so hopefully, I will be able to sneak a couple of squares in too. My hubby wants me to make my mil one of these too. I think I will make her a lapghan sized one and give it to her for Christmas. Can't wait to get started.
  5. I would like to join this too. I have the pattern around here somewhere. I will look for it and then go through my stash. I need to use up some of what I have so I'll have to see what I come up with for colors.
  6. Wow Misty. I hope they recover quickly. My kids have strep. The flu is running rampant here too. Luckily, so far we have dodged it. They are starting to close schools because of it. Take care!!
  7. Sent in my survey!! Can't wait for this to start!! Hope the kiddos get better quick Misty. Mine are both sick too.
  8. I received my package!! Cindy (Cindybmw2004) sent me a beautiful shawl and my first pair of knitted socks!! They are both just beautiful!! I have already used both!! Thank you Cindy for the wonderful package. Thank you Kathy for another great swap!! You can see pictures on my blog.
  9. I'm so glad you like them. I fell in love with your shawl that I made myself one too. Thanks for being a great swap partner!!
  10. Hi Cindy~~ Your shawl is done! Your goodies are done!! Will mail on Saturday!! I had a blast making your shawl. It turned out wonderful and I had to wrestle dd and promise I would make her one. LOL. Hope everyone is having a great week!!
  11. This sounds intriguing. It got the best of me and I signed up. It's giving me an excuse to go through all my sock yarn and finally use some of it up. Can't wait to get started!!
  12. I have the house cleaned and laundry done this morning. Hubs asked what my hurry was and I told him that this holiday weekend was devoted to crocheting.. I have a skein and a half to put onto my partners shawl and since I liked hers so much I decided to make me one too. I should finish the shawl today and then onto making her some goodies too. This swap has definately brought my crochet mojo back:yay. I'm having a great time with this!! Hope everyone has a wonderful day and weekend!!
  13. I got the yarn and started on your shawl Cindy (Cindybmw2004). It's coming along great:cheer I hope everyone has a happy Monday!!
  14. :clapI have my partner information and already heard from her. This is going to be a great swap. Now off to peruse the patterns. And my first trip to buy yarn in a loooong time.
